Agreed, with the addition of detail throughout and extension at both ends. The LCD-3 adds dimension, timbre and depth of sound -- I don't mean sound stage... the sound of each instrument and voice is just more full or 3-D without being flabby, if that makes sense -- across the spectrum. Attack and decay are incredibly life-like. On a good recording, the LCD sounds like you are right there with the musicians (vs. the HD-800 which puts you in the mid-back of the orchestra section). The LCD-3 is just a better headphone than the -2, and I'm driving mine with the headphone jack of a >20-yr.-old SS pre-amp. The question is whether the -3 is 2X better, and that's totally up to the individual's choice.
